Meat Balls

The method and ingredients used to make these meat balls 
by the various cooks
are almost the same.

In order that the meat balls are nice and bouncy,
make sure that the meat is processed until it is gluey and comes together.

Minced ginger is recommended
because it adds flavour and crunch!

500g minced pork, chilled

1/2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp corn flour
1 Tbsp minced ginger
2 ice cubes
Flavoring - either a shake of aromat or 1 Tbsp fish sauce 
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp baking powder (optional)

1. all ingredients into the food processor to beat until gluey and comes together

2. take a handful of the batter, squeeze it out through the thumb and the index finger
3. scoop out the ball of meat paste and drop into the boiling water
4. once the meat ball floats, it is cooked.
